Jenny Q Chai, pianist

A pianist of incredible talent, at home in core repertoire, and a champion and noted interpreter of 20th century and contemporary works, Jenny Q Chai also works to develop new interactive music score software and teaching in China and the USA. She founded and manages the Face Art Institute, a Shanghai-based body devoted to international exchange of music and musicians, and served on the board of Ear to Mind, the contemporary music organization in New York. Her other work as well as her concert schedule is too extensive to be listed here; she is currently based both in Shanghai and in California where she is a faculty member at the University of California, Berkeley.

The New Yorker described Jenny as “a pianist whose dazzling facility is matched by her deep musicality”. On top of all that she also projects a modern and liberated self image. Her newest album Songs of Love is available now through the Divine Art Recordings Group.
